Got a 4- pack of this recently; something new from my neighbors to the north!
Pours a nice dark color, but not completely opaque. A bit of head that fizzles out to a lacing at a moderate pace. Not a lot that I smell, seems a little fruity, but mostly I'm smelling the "house yeast" character that Unibroue beers have. Taste is nice with bits of chocolate, ?currant, fruit. Seems to not have as much roast character as I thought by looking at it. Carbonation and feel in the mouth are nice. Not too much sweetness. The alcohol makes it easier to drink a few.
Nice beer. A little surprising in that I was thinking I'd get something heavier. It's actually comparatively lighter (well, compared to Le Terrible) and nicely balanced for carbonation, mouthfeel, and alcohol content. However, I didn't find anything really compelling flavor wise.

Purchased at the LCBO for around $7.00 for a 750ml bottle. Less than 6mths old. Want to try one fresh and others later....
A- Excellent! Very dark. Opened hard with a TON of brown head.... 3" in a chalice. Head dissipates over 3 to 4mins to a nice film.
S- Excellent hops and malt. Caramel hints. coriander so I know this is a blend with Blanch De Chambly.
T- Yup! Wheat dark ale 100%. Very nice blend of recipes to come up with a winner. All around great beer. Airy and light despite the colour. Touch metallic though.
M- Very good. Very carbonated. Needs a bit of time to blend the flavors of dark ale and wheat beer.
O- Excellent! Will try again next year to see how it aged.
This very young, very carbonated beer surprisingly goes well with... Sushi!!!
For some reason this one went very, very well with sushi. Even with the light fish flavor it still does not overpower.
Thx for reading
